The best sunsets in the world and where to find them!
You’ll find out in this article. It’s a list of 22 best sunsets ever!
Last month, in collaboration with other travel bloggers, I published a collection of the most amazing sunsets of Europe. This time, I will show you the best sunsets from the rest of the world! Sunsets on the beach definitely win this compilation, but there are some taken not by the coast as well.
The list is pretty long, it starts with Australia and ends with Zanzibar. :-)
If you are curious about any of the places listed here, you can visit the websites of other travel bloggers, which will be linked here.
The best sunsets in Australia? I have some serious suspicion that Julia from Where is Julie + Sam knows every nook and cranny of Australia or, at least, is on the best way to do so. This photo was taken by her on the Kangaroo Island. However, to be frank, when I first saw this, my mind was like “it must be Ireland!”. Does anybody else see the resemblance? Photo taken in October.
The Great Otway National Park by the Great Ocean Road
The gorgeous sunset you can see below belongs to Aleks who writes a very inspirational, honest, and uplifting travel blog “Pojechana“. She bid farewell to 9-5 job for the sake of travel proving that you actually CAN live your dream full time.
The Lençóis Maranhenses National Park
Brazil is a huge counry, so where to find the best sunsets there? This sunset was shot by Ewelina from One Way 2 Freedom, who was also featured in the post with sunsets from Europe. This amazing national park is in the north-east of Brazil and it’s main hallmark are sand dunes. I would love to go there one day!
Seven Mile Beach
The photo below was sent to me by Matilda who, together with her sister, writes The Travel Sisters blog. To be honest, the biggest association I have with the Grand Cayman is “tax haven”. Beaches and nature is one thing, but a plain-looking building which is a house to…. 19 000 companies is something totally unique! Companies register as Cayman-domiciled bodies only to avoid paying huge taxes in the “normal” countries.
The best sunsets in India
This beautiful sunset was sent by Tatiana, from the Poszli-Pojechali blog, who took it in Kerala. Out of all the types of sunsets, I like the orange – pink ones the most.
This sunset was captured by Ami from Thrilling Travel blog. Ami is based in India so in case you were thinking of visiting it in 2016, I can totally recommend Ami’s blog for first-hand insider information.
This gorgeous photo was submitted by Kasia from the Vanilla Island blog. I absolutely love it and am seriously thinking of printing it out!
This sunset was captured Natalia from the Faraway Wilderness blog. Yazd, a city located in the heart of Iran is actually the driest and the hottest place in the whole country.
OK. So how about the best sunsets in Japan? Izabela knows it well. The author of the Love Traveling blog saw this sunset in November. The summit you can see in the background is Fuji – a holy mountain for the Japanese.
The volcano girl, Oliwia from the-Ollie blog had a pleasure to see this beautiful sunset while she was travelling from Bromo to Iljen. The bus driver was even asked by the passengers to stop and let them admire this unusual view for a while.
Monika, from the Wroclot blog, sent me a photo of the place I REALLY want to visit asap. Here the Ein Gedi beach in Israel.
Cambodia could not be omitted in this compilation. This photo was taken by one of my favourite travelling couples, Ewa and Romek from the Gonimy Słońce blog (in English it means we are chasing the sun). They are literally chasing the sun by living in hot and beautiful countries during winter months. Who wouldn’t like that?
I don’t need to introduce this lady, since she was featured in the first part of the “sunset series”. Kamila from Kami Everywhere travelled all over Cuba and spoiled herself with the abundance of amazing sunsets. Here is one of them.
Basia and Michal from the Poniosło Nas blog, saw their best sunset during their travel around the world. They were staying for a whole week on the Easter Island and had such views on daily basis from their camping site. That’s what I call to have luck in life!
Morondava, Avenue of the Baobabs
I was really hoping that someone who has been to Madagaskar will answer to my call for submissions. And Maja from the Traveling Rockhopper did! Thanks to that, we can all admire the best sunset on the Avenue of Baobabs, a must-see when in Madagascar.
Łukasz, from the Lkedzierski blog, visited Langkawi during low seasons and thanks to that, he could escape the crowds which normally hunt this place during high season. This sunset is totally amazing and I wish I could see something like that myself one day.
New Caledonia, Rocher de Kanumera
Karolina from the Ethno Passion blog went as far as New Caledonia to see this sunset. Rocher de Kanumera is located on the Ile des Pins island on the South Pacific Ocean. It sounds so exotic I can’t even imagine what she had to do to get there.
Joanna, from the Z Ciekawością przez Świat blog, would win the competition for the most red sunset ever. I absolutely love this photo. The amazing fact about this photo is that Joanna took it in December!
One more from Tatiana from Poszli-pojechali. It’s all about the sky and the clouds, for a moment I wasn’t even sure if I am looking at the sky or at it’s reflection in the water.
This one is mine. If someone asks me where to go in Turkey, my first answer is Göreme, especially if you’re in a hunt for the best sunsets. It’s one of the most exceptional places I’ve been to. It’s surreal, lunar, sublime. I spent there only three days but something tells me 2016 is going to be the year when I will revisit. Just go in May! The weather is brilliant, it’s already quite hot, but all nature is green and the valleys look amazing.
The Serengeti National Park
Hather, from Travelationship.com did not only catch a beautiful sunset, but also a leopard climbing up and down the tree!
Monika, from the Amused Observer blog, closes this amazing collection of the best sunsets. The photo was taken in Zanzibar in July, around 6 pm. What you can see in the middle, is the dhow, meaning a traditional boat with one or more masts.
Which sunset do you like most?
